Blood Moon

Solar eclipse
Blood moon
Must get up
Must remember to awake

A fathers promise, daddy’s duty
Sleep would have been nice though
The alarm would have done its job
Then the day would have been refreshing
Instead a dull tired ache accompanies my day

Yet it is oh so worth it
To see her marvel in the beauty
To share a moment
To witness firsts

Daddy’s privilege, my great honor
The great pleasure of loving life
The great gift of being loved

  1. Beautifull!
    I hope to catch the next one.
    This time around I was fighting a migraine & wanted nothing to do with anything – but – keep to myself & sleep.
